    China's first jet prototype moves places

     

    The body of a prototype of Y10, China’s first domestically designed and manufactured commercial jet, is transported yesterday to the aircraft assembly line of Commercial Aircraft Corp of China in Pudong’s Zhuqiao Town for exhibition from its original base in Dachang, Jing’an District. Designed in the 1970s, the Y10 — with only two prototypes — was China’s first commercial jet, with 125 seats. It flew for more than 170 hours in test flights between 1980 and 1984, but the project had to be scrubbed.
